So you’ve been deploying Java in the cloud and are wondering how to handle the new world of containers, microservices, and memory constraints. Cold starts got you down? Come to this session to learn about how the OpenJ9 and the JVM in general can help you on your Cloud Native journey.
Dan Heidinga is an Eclipse OpenJ9 project lead while also leading IBM’s J9 VM Interpreter team. He has been involved with virtual machine development since 2007 and has represented IBM on multple JSRS include JSR 292 (‘invokedynamic’) and JSR 335 (‘lambda’). He has his hands in most new JVM features and all major Java releases. In the past he’s spent entirely too long staring at Java bytecode while maintaining the verifier and still enjoys an occasional detour into Smalltalk development. As of this year, he’s also an CodeOne Rockstar.
